All-Glass Aquarium's mini-bow front
I spent 1/2 an hour this afternoon checking out All-Glass Aquarium's
mini-bow front that they have on sale at my LFS. I like what I saw! Its
glass, bigger than its competition i.e: the 6-gallon Eclipse and I
especially like the fact that it SEEMS to be "Amano-influenced" w/ black
silicone and sports a decent 18w bulb. The hood is more standard and less
proprietary in design so it looks like it will be MUCH easier to retro-fit
w/ AHSupplies' compact florescent (Yes, I highly recommend these).
Has anyone bought the new All-glass mini-bow front? Have you tried to
retrofit the light w/ a compact florescent?
I only wish the tank were just a 4-6in wider so I could get more depth for
aquascaping. I've often criticized All-Glass for not releasing a single
tank style marketed for plant people; shallower and wider is what we need;
like what they do for the reptile people, only we need thicker glass. Not
deep and narrow as is so typical. At least this new model does give us a
start at something easier to work with compared to the Eclipse 6-gallon.
The Eclipse 6-gallon scratches easily and seems to be designed to drive out
Co2. I own two of them and have given up trying to retro-fit them for Co2
